Today, Islanders legendary forward Mike Bossy is celebrating is 58th birthday.
Bossy played 10 seasons for the Islanders and scored at least 50 goals in each season except his final one. In all, he accumulated 1126 points in 752 regular season games. On top of that, he had another 160 points in 129 playoff games. Bossy was inducted into the NHL Hall of Fame in 1991. He is widely regarded as one of the best pure goal scorers in NHL history.
Next Thursday, the Islanders will honor Bossy with his own mini locker and he will drop out the ceremonial face off before the Islanders take on the Bruins.
We here at savetheisles would like to wish Bossy a very Happy Birthday.
